Day 92 Sunset Bay to Humbug Mtn State Park

I woke up today in the beautiful surroundings of Sunset Bay where I finally managed to perform the wheel dipping ceremony, but without any sunshine. After cycling back to Charleston to grab some breakfast junk food, we were warned by the locals of the toil ahead up the notorious seven devils road. In the words of Dolores you might be able to describe it as a 'significant' climb Pah! Compared to some of the stuff on the Transam I tbought tbe  7 hills were small potatoes.

We then breezed into Bandon where we had an early brunch/lunch at the Bandon Coffee Cafe. The blueberry sour cream coffee cake was delicious.

After lunch we had magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean as we hugged the coast. This is what I had been waiting for. Yesterday's tailwind was still in evidence and even stronger. Are we going to be blown all the way to San Francisco?

Aftet a late afternoon teastop we stocked up on a few provisions and then headed for camp, hopefully arriving a little earlier than yrsterday.

  1. Rob, the weather here has been very mixed and unpredictable for the past several weeks. We've had some fine sunny days but we've also had a lot of rainy ones .... including some truly torrential downpours. It seems like every time I've had the opportunity to take a day out from supervising all the current building works at the house and get on my bike .... that's the day it has decided to rain (heavily). Consequently, I've hardly managed to get out at all and I'm very frustrated by that ...... so much so that I went and bought myself a new cycle helmet in the Evans summer sale the other day just to remind myself that I do still have a bike !! Today it's Sunday ... it's dark, miserable and raining. Enjoy Route 1.

  2. Rob!!! I miss you & Dolo!!!
